For those of us who are overwhelmed just opening our inbox, it’s incomprehensible to consider how companies manage complex global supply chains. Surprisingly, according to a Jabil sponsored Dimensional Research global survey, many of those companies feel the same as 89 percent respondents reported having challenges with visibility into their supply chains. More concerning is the 96 percent who identified this lack of visibility as a point at which risk is introduced. For this reason, Jabil developed proprietary and patent pending Jabil InControl, an enterprise wide analytic platform. The platform helps Jabil manage increasing complexity, integrate often siloed functions, and provides actionable insights and visibility.
Jabil InControl offers predictive and prescriptive analytics to mitigate risk and identify often hidden opportunities by allowing customers access to Jabil’s commercial leverage and scale across 15 distinct vertical markets to shorten time to market, reduce risk, and more flexibility. The platform is a diverse ecosystem from suppliers, through the factories, to the end consumer, leveraging structured and unstructured, and streaming data.
Over 80 customers have visited Jabil’s Control Tower Centers, located in St Petersburg, Florida. Due to the overwhelming demand Jabil has just launched a second Control Tower Center in the Blue Sky Center in Silicon Valley.
Control Tower is a glimpse into the future of the Intelligent Digital Supply Chain, the Factory of the Future, and the Connected World, which is engineering growth in a world of change. Or, as one Jabil customer said, “Jabil has a rocket to go to Mars and we are on a bicycle.”
